manroland to Unveil Printvalue at Graph Expo
WESTMONT, IL—08/28/08—In a dollars-and-cents world, printers continuously look for ways to optimize their operations. One way to reduce overhead and boost press efficiency is to look at manroland’s Printvalue program. Its North American premier takes place at Graph Expo (booth #1246), to be held October 26-29 at McCormick Place in Chicago.
manroland will be extremely busy during the annual show. Besides the Printvalue debut, the company will conduct early morning press demonstrations and again host Dr. Joe Webb’s industry forecast seminar. The company continues to build off the momentum Printvalue established a few months ago at drupa where the highly anticipated service portfolio, which brings the contract portions of printservices®, printnet®, printcom®, and printadvice® under the same umbrella, was well-received.
“The industry reacted very well to the introduction of Printvalue at drupa, and now we are bringing it to North America at Graph Expo,” said Vince Lapinski, manroland CEO. “In today’s economic climate, it requires more than just being a good printer with a good press. The Printvalue program offers an across-the-board service strategy that puts you ahead of the competition. You can continue doing great work and now, at the same time, you can reduce costs and increase your efficiency by taking advantage of everything these programs have to offer.”
An Investment in Press Wellness
manroland will utilize a section of its booth for in-show demonstrations and free training seminars. One of the better known services is TelePresence, the company’s 24/7 remote diagnostics press support connection. It can ensure production uptime by solving most mechanical, electronic and software problems over the telephone. Several leading sheetfed and commercial web press operators who use various forms of Printvalue programs will lend their opinions.
“It’s not only performance but production reliability, workflow, and doing what it takes to be more profitable,” Lapinski said. “We hear from printers all the time about giving them the tools to make them more productive. Advances in technology are a prerequisite, but moving your business to the next level is about taking care of customers and what you can do to support them. Understanding a printer’s challenge is what Printvalue is all about, a 360-degree support program that is flexible enough to meet everyone’s needs.
